Waithe throws himself into the Gold Coast 2018

With Keshorn Walcott opting out of the Commonwealth Games 2018, Shakeil Waithe saw an opportunity and grabbed at it.

The T&T javelin thrower threw a mighty 79.90m at the NAAA's Pre-Commonwealth Games Meet to impress. That second throw was his best throw, but his other efforts weren't bad either.

His first throw landed 78.60m. His third was 79.13m, his fourth was 78.56m while his final was a foul.

You can watch his full interview with Guardian Media Sports above.
